A clip of a Missouri 14-year-old landing back-first on an ice covered trampoline has captured the internet’s attention, as the flying shards of frozen rain water impressed millions of viewers. The viral video shows Dylan McNew — fitted in some fresh royal blue Air Jordan 1s — jumping in a canon-ball position onto the trampoline. The impact caused the resting ice to shatter and fly into the air and all over McNew. “I couldn’t see the whole thing. After I jumped, I felt the ice break and cover me. It was pretty cool,” McNew said to Springfield, Missouri’s News-Leader. “I think it’s crazy how much it has blow up. His mom wasn’t as impressed as the rest of at first, saying the teen “absolutely [did] not” get permission to dive into the shards of ice. “He’s a little nut but I just pray a lot. He’s a little daredevil,” Michelle Blackmann McNew said. She soon changed her tune after seeing the slow-mo clip for herself, saying, “I just said ‘Wow, that was pretty awesome.'” Watch above, via ABC.
